We hope that you will join us for limited tours of our production facility on Saturdays at 11:15am and 11:45am and Tuesdays at 5:30pm. Tours are $10 each and include a Founders logo pint glass. We are also offering a combined tour and tasting experience on Saturdays at 12:30pm for $30. In addition to the tour of our production facility, you will participate in a guided tasting of all of our regularly distributed beers, as well as something special. (Don’t ask us what it will be—it will vary and may not be determined until the day of the tasting. Surprises are fun.) One of our education ambassadors will guide you through both of our brewhouses—our original 30 barrel system and our 2011 addition, an 85 barrel Steinecker Combicube B to which we added another mash tun and kettle in April 2013; our cellar, with fermenters and bright tanks of various shapes and sizes; our on-site warehouse; and our packaging hall, which includes a KHS kegging line, a Krones bottling line, a depalletizer and lowerator. a recently installed canning line and a new palletizer. All of this equipment helps us produce enough beer to be the 30th largest craft brewery by sales volume in 2012—and we continue to grow. Our education ambassadors will explain what is unique about our process and will answer any questions that you may have along the way. Please arrive on time. Must be 21 and up. Closed toe shoes are required.
